Not today: Hershey pregame

on
Pretty sure Brett Gallant and the Sound Tigers were hoping he’d be ready for this one. After that fight with Michael Sdao last night, he won’t play today. What can you do? Well, you can put Dyson Stevenson in, for one thing. That appears to be the only switch for Bridgeport, aside from putting Kevin […] [Read More]

Sadly rare Binghamton liveblog

on
Bridgeport pays its lone visit to Binghamton tonight. After they were division rivals and, for one brief, shining moment, playoff rivals, they have met just once in each city for six years in a row now. Understandable but disappointing. Anyway. We’ll be listening to Grady Whittenburg (audio / video). We’ll be following the assembled Matt […] [Read More]

Syracuse liveblog, mathematically alive edition

on
It’s ’80s Night in Syracuse, so maybe they throw together a 7-6 game or something like that. We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). The box should be here (Garrett Rank/Tim Kotyra, Brian Oliver), and this should be Binghamton-WBS. Was asked on Twitter about the […] [Read More]

College brackets, pro questions: Binghamton pregame

on
Only one little swap had been scheduled for Bridgeport: This is how they were originally supposed to go, but Kael Mouillierat went to the room early. Didn’t catch what was up there. Possible Chris Langkow stays him for him, but we’ll see how the lineup looks. Edit: Mouillierat’s in, so guess it wasn’t anything big. […] [Read More]

Ain’t broke: Providence pregame

on
Except for starting Kevin Poulin, Bridgeport’s lineup remains the same from last night’s win. For Providence, Linus Arnesson, the Bruins’ second-round pick in 2013 and just over from Sweden, makes his North American debut, a bit of a surprise, as Mark Divver noted earlier. One to scratch; looked like Frank Vatrano. It was. BRIDGEPORT F: […] [Read More]

Springfield liveblog

on
Dodging snowflakes (though that’s not the primary reason… really somewhere around quaternary), we’re liveblogging from the living room tonight while the Sound Tigers are in Springfield. We’ll be listening to Chuck Scott on AHL Live (audio/pay-per-view). This should be the box. (T.Koharski, Alarie/Colby, F.Murphy.) We’ll follow Paul among others. Prescout here, Providence against Manchester, whose […] [Read More]

Syracuse pregame

on
No Sebastian Collberg today — healthy — so Scooter Vaughan gets back in. Several rearrangements, including Johan Sundstrom going back to the middle, but that looks like the only in-and-out change aside from the change in net, which Brent Thompson told us about last night. Syracuse ran all seven defensemen and I missed their first […] [Read More]

Places in history: Lehigh Valley pregame

on
Game 60 tonight. Time hurries along sometimes, and sometimes it drags (Matt Donovan plays tonight up top for the first time in two months, for instance #FreeDono). Seeing Donovan’s release from the cage while waiting for high schools this morning, I got to wondering about this: All-time Bridgeport defenseman scoring Name GP G A Pts […] [Read More]

Halmo, Mouillierat, Mayfield back

on
Two-thirds of a top line — or, a third of their top six — returns tonight for the Sound Tigers. Mike Halmo’s back from injury; Kael Mouillierat’s back from the NHL. Lengthens the lineup just a tiny bit, no? Scott Mayfield comes back from his six-game suspension, too. The Sharks have one to scratch. First […] [Read More]

Worcester (last trip in) semiliveblog

on
Again otherwise occupied today, though hoping to catch up on tonight’s game relatively early. We’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, you’ve got Phil tonight (audio/pay per view). Follows include Paul, Phil, Eric Lindquist’s in-game (his call is here) and [Read More]
